Husband and wife team Peter Snow and Ann Macmillan introduce us to their new book ‘War Stories: Gripping Tales of Courage, Cunning and Compassion’. It is a fascinating illustrated account of ordinary people swept up by the horror of war.
Their eponymous book on which the talk is based draws on 30 true stories about men and women who’ve made their mark on wartime history, from the incredible escape of John Bukleley and a handful of the crew of a Royal Navy warship wrecked on the wild coast of Chile, up to today’s horrifying ordeal of a Syrian refugee and his family nearly drowned during their escape to Greece.
These stories are the stuff that legends are built upon, stories of the men and women who have pushed the barriers of bravery, suffering and sheer terror beyond the imaginable.
They will be signing copies of their new book post talk.
